I play games for fun.

You were the Chosen One! You were supposed to destroy the Sith, not join them. You were supposed to bring balance to the force, not leave it in darkness.

When you're a teenager that lives in the UK in a throwaway culture, lives in a tenement house the size of a chernobyl apartment, and have parents that don't know what a videogame is and you have no job to buy any nor any appreciation for older games, you get seether.

Just give it up dude. We get it that you wish you could live in America and have a nice big American house where you can set up a spread, but maybe if you got off this forum and worked towards that goal you might be able to.

I'm mid 20s, my OP to this thread was all about intentional buying and not having a lot of stuff that goes unused taking space, I have a nice house mortgaged, my parents have bought me games my whole life growing up, I have a permanent full time job and I own several older games.

Stay mad though.

I mean, you're not even really a collector. You just troll this forum whenever you feel like it with bland, vague and uninteresting topics.
I’ve never seen someone stay as triggered as long as you.

I only buy uncommon/sought after retro games to prevent myself from amassing an unwieldy size collection.

I don’t think I would feel right with walls and walls of largely unused items.

I have to really want to own something to bring it into my house.

My collecting style is super casual. I’ll only pick something up seeing it in the wild if my eyes widen and pop out of my head when I see it. So far I’ve had that reaction coming across the following (UK PS2): Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel, Parappa the Rapper 2, Silent Hill 3, Sly Raccoon.

Having a modern PC and buying PC games exclusively on Steam I have almost never had any issues.

I can’t think of anything more stupid.

Thanks for the insightful, tactful reply!   ::)

He just wants attention
No, that’s really my opinion on empty boxes.

Off Topic / If you collect movies - which ones are your most watched?

I like to rewatch the Halloween and Friday the 13th movies.

Star Wars also never gets old.

Sly Raccoon and PaRappa the Rapper 2

Fallout: Brotherhood Of Steel and Silent Hill 3

All on PS2. The former two found in charity shops the latter two found at car boot sales.

I prize them because it makes me happy that I got such insane deals on them and they are good relatively sought after games (most PS2 are worth nothing). They remind me of how my eyes widened and I how good it felt to see them in the settings that I saw them at.

General / How intentional are you about picking up new stuff?
« on: January 14, 2019, 06:09:22 pm »
Do you have a wishlist and regularly buy off it or just browse flee markets, goodwill, ebay etc. until a good deal is found on something that interests you that you stumble upon by accident?

I'm not saying I don't care about other collectors but there are specific instructions in my will to bury me with my game collection.

I don't have duplicates. It's pretty easy for me to understand having more than one copy though ... better condition disc/box/inserts/manual for starters. The pure scarcity of a title for another.

Not buying everything up when retro games were all over the place for pennies at car boot sales years ago.
